Ok my CC geniuses .. I'm having trouble with ideas for this cake for a baby shower. I was told she wants this design; the 3 square tiers without the ribbon and bow. Wants the first tier yellow, second tier pink and bottom tier purple.

She wants me to put some baby stuff on the sides of the tiers, but what? she also wants to keep the white dots on the sides of the cake too..also I'm out of ideas for a topper?


Here is the cake, I'm not sure who made it or where it came from but any ideas are greatly appreciated!

Thanks so much!
LL

what about baby booties for the topper? and maybe a rattle, bottle etc made out of fondant or gumpaste for the sides? I looked at your photos and you do beautiful cakes so I know you can do this one too!! thumbs_up.gif
Good luck!

Pacifiers for the corners would be cute, or rattles. You can make some rattles out of buttercream, freeze them and transfer onto the cake.

If you have time to make a little fondant bear, that would be cute to add to one of the tiers, too. I'd look at some other cake pictures here and try to find a few different items to make and add them. It's a pretty cake and almost anything will look good on it.

Good luck and make sure to post the final product!

You could make a baby figure out of fondant/gumpaste on a blanket or under a blanket for the topper. You could also maybe make little blocks to match the colors of the layers and put them on the cake board.

I like the teddy bear idea, maybe even some tiny ABC blocks. I'm weird...I know she wants baby stuff but I don't like rattles, pacifiers or booties (just me, I guess)....

Could you do a baby peeking out from under a blanket for the topper?

If they have the theme of the shower picked out, you could get an invitation or napkin and try to duplicate some of those elements.

You know what will be really cute?? Some baby blocks.
Yo can stack like 2 on each corner of the cakes. That way, the blocks will be in the yellow, pink, and purple.

As fpr the topper, maybe a cute little teddy bear??

HTH!
